The Working Group of Young Scholars in Public International Law (Arbeitskreis junger Völkerrechtswissenschaftler*innen – AjV) and the German Society of International Law (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationales Recht – DGIR) are organizing a joint conference at Freie Universität Berlin, on 6-7 September 2019, on the topic of
Cynical International Law?
Abuse and Circumvention in Public International and European Law
The conference's concept is specifically designed to enable an exchange between younger and more established academics and practitioners.
The conference is dedicated to a highly topical issue: the cynicism which finds expression, inter alia, in the abuse and circumvention of international and European law. Professor Gerry Simpson (LSE) will introduce this topic with a keynote speech, which will be open to the public. The Völkerrechtsblog will accompany the conference online, inter alia with a livestream of the keynote.
A limited number of places at the conference is available for Engaged Listerners. Please apply until 28 June 2019.
